Scan Global Logistics (SGL) and Hapag-Lloyd have joined forces in a multimillion-dollar partnership to integrate biofuels into their shipping operations. This initiative aims to help customers reduce carbon emissions and support global efforts to combat climate change by utilizing biofuel derived from renewable sources. The collaboration also seeks to establish a long-term partnership for further upscaling sustainable transport solutions.

SGL expressed confidence in the feasibility of contributing to decarbonizing the maritime and logistics industries by using available biofuel solutions. Mads Drejer, SGL’s Global COO and CCO, emphasized the partnership’s potential to reduce emissions and deliver sustainable logistics solutions. Tom De Wilde, Hapag-Lloyd’s Senior Director of Global Sales, highlighted their joint commitment to decarbonization and positive change in the shipping industry, aligning with Hapag-Lloyd’s goal of operating a net-zero fleet by 2045.

Additionally, Hapag-Lloyd has partnered with IKEA Supply Chain Operations to decarbonize container shipments originating from Asia. Starting in March 2024, they will use Hapag-Lloyd’s Ship Green 100, which utilizes waste- and residue-based biofuel instead of conventional marine fuel oil. This collaboration represents a significant advancement in the maritime industry, promoting a greener and more sustainable future for global shipping. Hapag-Lloyd’s Ship Green product continues to offer emission-reduced ocean transport options for customers.
